Reviews for The Little Nature Museum

Role: Professional with expertise in this field
Rating: 4 stars  

The Little Nature Museum was established in the early 1950's. I became familiar with it through my girl friend who became my wife. It was established in Winthrop, MA as that was where Sandy was living. She went to the University of New Hampshire where she kept some animals in her dorm room. Later she married my fraternity roommate. When she got married, she was able to expand the museum.

I think the museum's present location is excellent and the museum has collection that has grown with the space she now has. She has alos arranged for presentations to be made by experts in their fields, which I think is worthwhile. Sandy has put her soul into the museum, and it shows.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Educating children in being better stewards of the environment. She has also set up trails for the children to walk on to observe nature.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Provide more funding so that there would be adequate funds to work with.
